Mexico: Pacific Coast

Visit Us

The Pacific coast is backed by rolling hills covered in vegetation varying from arid desert to Mediterranean-style scrub and luxuriant forest. Tumbling down to the shoreline, these cliffs and hills harbour many horseshoe coves and beaches of white to ochre sands. The waves on the Pacific coast have a long way to come, and these rollers are much beloved by surfers.

Along the vast length of this coastline there are areas which are highly commercialised (Acapulco, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta). However there are also hotels and resorts with their own extensive grounds on less developed stretches of coast, especially around Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo. The Oaxaca shoreline around Huatulco and Puerto Escondido is particularly spectacular, with stretches of virgin beach.

Our insider tips for Pacific Coast

A relaxing beach wind down on one of the nine bays at Huatulco, where tourism development is a more muted affair than in the flashier resorts to the north and west, with less noise and pollution.

Spotting gigantic grey whales breaching off the coast as they make their journey between Alaska and Baja California, where they breed. [CP Obs:The Pacific coast we’re talking about lies south of both of the above, ie beyond, not between]

Surfing off the beach at Puerto Escondido, once a back-packer paradise, now more developed but still with an outdoor adventure feel.

A big splurge to round off a Mexican holiday, luxuriating at one of the top-end hotels discreetly studding the coast, with their own beach frontage and tropical palm-dotted gardens.
